RISC World

Disc World

What's also on this CD-ROM?

This CD-ROM contains a number of utilities and pieces of software to accompany the articles in the magazine.


There are three utilities to help you read this disc (RISC OS users only):

  • A file-only copy of Fresco, to display the HTML. This will only run if you don't already have a copy of Fresco installed, so that it won't overwrite your cache.
  • SparkPlug, which can be used to read the archived software on the disc.
  • ArcFS, which can be used to read some of the archived software on the disc.

Usenet archive

Also included on the disc in the USENET directory is an archive of the comp.sys.acorn.* newsgroups. These are stored in a special read-only version of Messenger Pro which will allow you to view the messages, but nothing more complicated. The archive is presented 'as is', and RISC World doesn't make any guarantee about the usefulness, relevance or acceptability of any information contained in it.

Other software

Several of the articles in the magazine have accompanying software - see the following for details:
